Chris Weitz Confirmed as 'New Moon' Director

The Golden Compass director Chris Weitz has been confirmed as the director for New Moon, the sequel to the hugely successful film Twilight, according to MTV.

Mr. Weitz released a statement, saying “I am honored to have been entrusted with shepherding New Moon from the page to the screen. The extraordinary world that Stephenie has created has millions of fans, and it will be my duty to protect on their behalf the characters, themes and story they love. This is not a task to be taken lightly, and I will put every effort into realizing a beautiful film to stand alongside a beautiful book.”

It was announced earlier that Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke and the movie studio Summit Entertainment were parting ways.

YaY! FIRST!

# 2

the books are better sorry but the twilight movie was ****!

# 3

im gonna miss catherine :(

# 4

hopefully he does a better job than catherine, because twilight was soo bad, which really was sad since the books are so amazing!

# 5

I saw the movie…..

Yeah, it sucked.

# 6

he’s right.
its not an easy job to do.
everybody’s expecting too much.

but catherine did a great job :D
wish all the best for her!

I’m kinda of worried about Nww Moon, after all, Edward doesn’t appear much in the book. I don’t wanna spend my money to see Bella e Jacob all the movie and then, 10 minutes left Edward shows up.

Ugh, I think they should probably do something about it, not changing the whole book, maybe a few parts, because in the end of the day, Rob Pattison is the fav for Bella… not sure Jacob will be cool enough to be in the movie the whole 11/2 alone with her. x_X

ROBERT PATTINSON (L)
Always hot and good looking, OMEEEEE !!!

I was just thinking about one thing :

In new-moon we don’t see Edward a lot !

And i can’t stand bella/jacob

Kristen is just a bad actress (sorry for her fans) but i don’t like her !

so i’am worried…

Will see !

I agree with a few people UP
NM is the worst book and the end of eclipse phew makes me wanna throw up

jacob is too annoying blehhh and bella too stupid (sorry, just my opinion… and the ones that read the book know why i think that LOL i dont wanna say why because there might be a few ppl that didnt read it )

lookin forward to see what they’ll do with the script though

..am i going crazy or did i see this same exact thread before? LOL

Catherine did a good job with what she had.
she only had 3 million to work this.

This guy was the producer of some of the American pie.
He better not mess this **** up.

lol@new moon is the worst book.
it isnt bad…Just bella did alot of crying.

i’m actually eager to see Kristen stewart do that so she can prove all the people wrong who said she was a bad bella.

love the book! hated the movie!

It baffles me why people still run to the theater to see this movie every weekend knowing its awful. Same with 4 Christmases which is awful. Guess people like throwing away money.

my opinion @ 12/14/2008 at 11:14 am

NM is the worst book and the end of eclipse phew makes me wanna throw up

i agree. the story should have ended at twilight. if new moon, was the first in the series, it would have NEVER taken off, bcus it sucks.

LOL it does suck!
IT’S PART OF THE STORy

edward not being there.

BABY V FAN 4EVER!! @ 12/14/2008 at 11:24 am

i want vanessa to play Leah!!!!! it would be the ONLY reason why i would watch new moon, because twilight sucked!!!!

me too, i want vanessa to play Leah!!! actually i wanted her to play bella, she is so much better and prettier than kristen, but kristen is bella so i want vanessa to play Leah.

i totally agree with #18 and #19 vanessa would be awesome as Leah, i hope she gets the part!!! then i would totally watch twilight!!! just because of her!! =) she rocks! <3

VANESSA TO PLAY LEAH OR BELLA????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????!!!!!

I have absolutely NO COMMENT for that. Just…oh my God…That’s just ridiculous.

i’m glad catherine’s not directing new moon, cuz i didnt enjoy the movie as much as i enjoyed the book. i think she did a terrible job.

lol vanessa as bella?

get out of here.

lmaooo!
someone’s stuck on disney world.

leah should be played by blood moongold.

is vanessa even auditioning?

Best movie of 2008
